Three professors predicted how will disinformation develop on social media in 2022. According to scientists, without strict regulation, false information the network will increase.
Experts interviewed by TechXplore, note that the lack of independent audits, transparency in fact-checking, racial and gender bias, which are at the heart of social media algorithms, call for regulatory action in the current 2022 year.
They also come to the conclusion that social networks can divide people. There is a tendency for consumers to shift the blame for spreading fake news to journalists and politicians, although they are not the only ones who can create false information.
People are becoming increasingly skeptical of various institutions due to the fact that they face an abundance of fake news online. And that could become a problem for democracy, experts say.
According to them, fakes will be seen more and more as propaganda in 2022. Experts believe that this year could become a critical and turning point for disinformation.
